A Coastal Christmas - How To Create The Perfect Look...


If you're spending Christmas by the coast this year - or even if you just love the ocean and want to add a nautical twist to your celebrations - there are so many ways to incorporate a little seaside style into your festivities!  Funky Scottish is based right by the sea on Scotland's gorgeous east coast, so I'm always picking up new ideas (literally) during walks along the coastal path.  However, if you don't have easy access to a shoreline, just surf online for inspiration!  Here are a few fabulous finds that I discovered via the web...

Wrapped Up Like A Fish Supper...

Newspaper isn't just for fish & chips on wintery days!  Create a unique and funky recycled festive gift wrap by contrasting neatly folded newspaper with bright festive ribbon.  You could also use old maps, parcel string and pretty seashell decorations! 


Snowdrifts & Driftwood...

If you're short on space and want to create a tree that could last a lifetime, make your own driftwood tree, then decorate it with seashells and beach combing trinkets!  Check out our driftwood tree on display in the Funky Scottish boutique!


Hooked On Christmas...

These baubles and trinkets would look great hanging from the gorgeous vintage coat hooks that you can see and buy in our Funky Scottish boutique on the high street in Pittenweem.

Give your festive table a nautical feel with red & white contrasts, a big lantern and a 'ship's ladder' decorated in fairy lights.  For the main Christmas Dinner and special celebrations, add some beachy bling by including lots of silvery sea shades and a scattering of baubles and seashells.
